(Bauer Griffin)more pics » Eva Longoria and Tony Parker (Photo Agency) Tony Parker admits he is reeling after his split from Desperate Housewives beauty Eva Longoria. The San Antonio Spurs point guard opened up to Le Parisien, a paper in his home country of France.

"The most important thing is to stay strong mentally, even if these are very difficult times," the basketball star says. "I've taken refuge in basketball because that's what I've done best since my youth."

Parker and Longoria's marriage ended abruptly two months ago, amid rumors that he had sent numerous flirty text messages to mutual friend Erin Barry, who is a fellow teammate's wife.

Despite the gossip hoopla, Parker and Longoria have tried to remain cordial in public and Parker avoided mentioning her name in the interview.

"My whole family has been around me through this," he adds. "You have to keep things in perspective. I am, first of all, a basketball player."

Hopefully his personal drama won't get between Parker and the basketball hoop.
